I'm the writer behind The Modern Nest- my little nook on the internet where I share tips, projects, and resources related to modern home life. Over the years I've learned that building a functional, personal, less stressful, and beautiful home in today’s hectic world can be tricky. The balance of a seemingly endless number of facets in our lives is a delicate one, and most of us encounter challenges, struggles, and frustrations along the way, such as:
Learning to DIY (for fun or for finances)
Living a healthier lifestyle
Creating a clean, functional, personal, beautiful, and relaxed home
"The balance of a seemingly endless number of facets in our lives is a delicate one, and most of us encounter challenges, struggles, and frustrations along the way..."
It takes a lot of hard work to make one-let alone all– of these facets to work smoothly. My mission is to help you work through these hurdlesby taking all the lessons I've learned over the years and passing them on to you. The lessons aren't always easy, andyou'll see plenty of tough lovefrom me. But hopefully by reading my blog you'll feel inspired to make your home functional, organized, and beautiful. After all, it's your life: Make it yours, andown it!
Who We Are
That's us in the front! Ted is holding our son William, and my best friend Molly and her husband Frank are in the back.
Oh hey...this is me! I'm the crazy who decided to start The Modern Nest after leaving a career in Chemistry. I was born and raised in Philly but have lived in Boston with my husband Ted for the past four years. Together we have one human child (William, aka "Little Grasshopper") and two feline fur babies (Linus and Luisa). I am in charge of project ideas, writing, designing, and marketing on The Modern Nest.
Edward ("Ted") Mitchell
Ted is my husband and partner in crime. Without him, this site would be nothing! In addition to his day job as Chief Software Architect at a startup company for cloud-based point-of-sales solutions, he makes sure this site stays running and makes all my design decisions come to life! We also work together on DIY plans and he often does the manual DIY labor while I do the project photography.
